Reinstalling Lightroom and transferring photos

Hi

Not sure this is the right sub-forum... move if necessary.

I'm replacing my computer. I have all my photos in a Lightroom catalogue on the hard drive. I'll simply copy the entire data hard drive from my old computer to my new computer. I will have to install Lightroom again on the new computer.

Question is what is the best way to get as seamless transition as possible to continue working same as before (having the entire catalogue)?

I vaguely remember there is actually a catalogue file somewhere but I've never messed with it, just imported photos and I have no idea where anything is saved other than the photos themselves.

Another question... I still have actual copies of Lightroom and another Adobe program (not the subscription). Is there a problem installing on the new computer? Is there something to know before?

Thanks
